Don’t be suspicious of China, daily tells India

Beijing, Aug 31 (IANS) It is regrettable that some Indians treat China’s increasing influence in Myanmar with suspicion and even hostility, a Chinese daily said on Wednesday.

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s recent trip to China has been widely associated with Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw’s visit to India, with one Indian daily describing Myanmar as “a theatre of geopolitical competition between India and China”, a Global Times opinion piece said.

“It is understandable to evaluate bilateral ties from a geopolitical perspective but China is unlikely to be interested in begrudging any increased interaction between India and Myanmar,” the Times said.

“In contrast, China would be happy to see more substantive help from India to (Myanmar), for instance in promoting Myanmar’s peace process.”
